The club’s 2019 Pentathlon will be held in Abbotstown Indoor Arena on Saturday 19th January, 2019.  This is a DSD only event and entry is open to all club members from U12 (born 2008) up to U18 (born 2002).  There is an entry charge of €5 per athlete payable on the day. 


The format of the Club Pentathlon is as follows:


·         Choice of one running event:

o   60m sprint (U12’s only)

o   60m Hurdles (U13 – U18)

o   800m (U12 – U18)

·         Choice of one jumping event:

o   Long Jump (U12 – U18)

o   High Jump (U12 – U18)

·         All athletes do the Shot Putt.


The competition is a relaxed fun day for all.  It is a great opportunity to try a new event and our coaches are on hand to give advice.  Don’t be afraid to try something new, it’s all a bit of FUN!


Time allowing, we may have a relay race at the end.  This will be decided on the day.


Parents, our coaches and some senior/master athletes have agreed to help on the day, but we need your help too.  We would appreciate if you put your name forward to help on the day – don’t worry about any experience as you’ll be assisting a senior coach.  The only thing we expect is a smile, good sense of fun and perhaps a little muscle to move hurdles or rake the sand.


The entry form is now open on our website (Click Here), please submit your entry without delay – ENTRIES OPEN TILL TUESDAY 15th JANUARY.
